25 seeds per pack
Name: Lanakila yellow cherry tomato
Scientific Name: Solanum Lycopersicum
An heirloom selection by way of our friend Val from a seed swap we hosted, this delightful yellow cherry tomato was named for the place in Hawaii where she encountered it. Producing loads of ¼”-1/2” yellow tomatoes with white lacing on the bottom, they were one of the most productive tomatoes we’ve grown second only to Matt’s Wild. Sweet, bright and soft skinned these are perfect fresh or used in vinaigrettes or my favorite way is slightly blistered in the pan to caramelize some of sugars. We are excited to offer this unique variety and hope you love it as much as we have.
Recommended Uses: fresh, salads
Height: indeterminate vine 6’+
Hardiness: zones: warm season annual
Flower Color: yellow
Maturity: 70-80 days
Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date in soilless starter mix. Sow seeds ¼” deep and keep moist and between 75-85 degrees until germination in 7-14 days. Cold temperatures slow down germination significantly. Transplant to 4” pot when two sets of true leaves show and plant is safe to work with. If weather is still cool and plant is getting leggy bump up to 1 gallon so tomato doesn’t become root bound. When weather is warm and frost date has passed, plant in full sun rich well-draining soil location. Space determinate varieties 1-2’ apart, indeterminate staked 2-3’ apart and indeterminate unstaked 3-4’ apart. Keep soil evenly moist throughout season but excess water causes cracking. Tomatoes prefer high nitrogen fertilizer when young and high phosphorus when setting fruit.
